Video Report (Press Briefing): Marking Two Years after the Quake —Potentials of Architecture and Art: How They Can Commit to and What They Can Do for Reconstruction and Revival of Japan (February 21, 2013)

post date : 2013.08.21

FPCJ invited two men: Mr. Taro Igarashi, Artistic Director of Aichi Triennale 2013, and Mr. Toyo Ito, Architect, a leading figure in the “Home-for-All” project in such a disaster-hit area as Sendai for rehabilitation. They talked about how architects and artists regard “3.11” and are committed to reconstruction; how they can solve emerging problems, and what they should transmit to the world. Also, FPCJ was connected by the Internet with the “Home-for-All” adjacent to temporary houses in Miyagino-ku, Sendai, for talks with the victims and their supporters.
